Jay PerkinsYreka Fire Safety3 hrs · For some emergencies, we are not going to evacuate our homes. Sometimes, even for wildfires, there is a chance that escape is not safe or probable. Are you ready to shelter in place? In the attached graphic, you will see things to consider if you find yourself on foot, in a vehicle or if you find yourself at home and you need to seek shelter from a looming disaster.The California Department of Public Health has additional considerations for sheltering in place.

Fire Safe Council of Siskiyou County
When it is time to evacuate your home because of a looming emergency, being prepared can remove a significant amount of stress. You will know what to do, you will know where to go, you will know how to get there, you will have the things you need to live for a while and, above all, you will know how to keep yourself and your family safe. You can even know how to help your neighbor! Too many disasters in other parts of the State have had less than positive results. Please don’t let that happen to you.
Do you live with someone that will require more time or special attention? Way too often, seniors, people living with disabilities, those that struggle with understanding English, and other vulnerable populations are the people with the most difficult time evacuating during a disaster. Please visit the site immediately below a host of considerations for vulnerable citizens and things that can be done ahead of time and at the time of an evacuation.
Please get yourself and your family ready for an emergency. Have a firesafe week.
